Welcome to Camp McIntosh


     We, the Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV), are the direct heirs of the United Confederate Veterans. The SCV was organized at Richmond, Virginia in 1896 and is the oldest hereditary organization for male descendants of Confederate soldiers.

 

     The SCV is a patriotic, historical, educational, fraternal, benevolent, non-political, non-racial, non-sectarian, non-profit organization dedicated to ensuring that a true history of the 1861-1865 period is preserved.




      





               

    
Our purpose is embodied in the Charge to the Sons of Confederate Veterans given to us by the old veterans, themselves, in the person of Lt. General Stephen Dill Lee, Commander General of the United Confederate Veterans in 1906:



"To you, Sons of Confederate Veterans, we will commit the vindication of the cause for which we fought. To your strength will be given the defense of the Confederate soldier's good name, the guardianship of his history, the emulation of his virtues, the perpetuation of those principles which he loved and which you love also, and those ideals which made him glorious and which you also cherish."
 

    
We invite you to join us if you are a descendant of a Confederate veteran, and if you believe that the defense of your Confederate ancestor’s good name and the preservation of our Southern history and heritage is important to you.
